Ringo is such a sweet guy. Just shows how much he cares for his old friends if he posts 2 happy birthday messages in one year!

Nothing to do with an honest mistake at all…

Wow! Of all the people that might get John’s birthday wrong, I never considered that Ringo could be one of them. That’s funny!

I do find it a bit strange, though, that he mentioned Yoko and Sean, but not Julian. a-hard-days-night-paul-10

Maybe he made the post on the 9th in LA, but it was the 10th in England and he got confused with the writing direction of the date 9/10 10/9.

All existence of that should be taken to the largest underground acid pit and thrown in. A very good case for not seeing Ringo’s back catalogue being made available.

Ringo did an update today, but @Ron Nasty beat me to the punch in Beatles news ahdn_john_08_gifHe does look really good though and the book looks fab.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.

Shouldn’t this thread be pinned like the one’s for John, Paul and George? The pinned threads, miscellanous questions, interviews, and appreciation.

Mod edit: topic is now pinned.

This is an odd one, a book called ‘A Heart Like Ringo Starr ‘.

A Heart Like Ringo Starr by Linda Oatman HighImage Enlarger

 

Her family runs Stevens Brothers Funeral Home. Which is ironic, since Faith Hope Stevens is not long for this world. Unless someone dies. Unless there is a match. Staying alive will mean a heart transplant. Faith copes with wit and nerve. She’s also a little pissed off. She will never grow old. She will never have a boyfriend. Then one shocking day everything changes …

I’ve got no idea why Ringo is in the title?

Faith Hope Stevens has been sickly ever since she was born with “A slacker of a ticker/ and not enough air/ in my lungs/ or in my blood.”

I want a heart
that ticks.
That tocks.
A cardio clock
that rocks.
That knocks to
the beat
of me.

“…the story of seventeen-year-old Faith Hope Stevens who has a congenital heart disease.”

I think the reference to Ringo is about having a working heart that keeps “regular” time – beats regularly – since Ringo is known a the human metronome.

I think I liked the last one better. Not sure why he couldn’t have combined them to make a full length. Both of them were the price of a regular album, too.

I enjoyed the EP. If he put all the songs onto an album, it would have been one of his best in the last 10 years.
